The Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation (WACF) was formed in 1991 to anticipate, seek out and resolve threats to the water quality in the Wawasee area watershed. The Foundation is dedicated to promoting education, encouraging best management practices to reduce erosion and acquiring wetlands and endangered shoreline areas. Now in our 25th year, our efforts have resulted in the acquisition and protection of over 10 miles of shoreline and 47 wetland areas totaling over 829 acres.
Take an Aerial Tour with the WACF and follow the flow of water through our many lakes and wetlands. This new 9 minute video promotes understanding of the important work WACF does to protect the wetlands that filter our lake water.
